12 Product Picks From Maison&Objet’s January 2024 Show
More than 65,000 visitors braved the cold and flocked to the Maison&Objet exhibition at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition park, which took place from January 18-22, 2024. Here are our top picks for the best and the brightest from this year’s trade show.
Elements Collection Side Table, Coffee Table, and Console in Off-White by Ethnicraft
Simple, softened shapes get organic, stone-like texture from microcement, each piece hand-finished and unique. The off-white finish of the round and rectangular coffee tables, mushroom-shaped side tables, and console goes beyond being visually appealing—it’s also easy to clean.
Lilacs and herby greens were a strong presence this year, bringing freshness to fabrics and furniture alike. At Fermob, the shades appeared in the new colors Marshmallow and Pesto—the former a grown-up version of childhood sweets, the latter a nod to sunny days spent outside.
Stool O1 by Magic Circus Éditions
This simple stool can go practically anywhere, from a perch in front of your boudoir table to a seating option in a co-working space. And with an array of shimmering fabrics from Elitis in seven designs and 36 colors, you’ll always be sitting pretty.
Chadophe Wall Lamp S and Chadophe Wall Lamp M by Patrick Paris for Serax
The soft glow produced inside the thick, solid, and concave concrete reflector pairs with the resulting dramatic shadow to make this lamp feel a part of the wall itself. (The name is a play on the word “shadow”.)
IO Lamp by Nelson Fossey / Index Office
Tacking a more sensitive approach to new technologies, Nelson Fossey wanted his 3D-printed suspension lamps to have a softness, and an open and more woven fabric-like appeal. The curves push the limit of the process, while an inner transparent shade produces an ethereal glow.
Stack by Studio MOTO thru Belgium is Design
A flexible system shown as part of the Belgium is Design group that clicks together without screws or other fasteners. Made from a set of 14 aluminum components that can be combined in nearly unlimited configurations: create shelves, cabinets, and even coffee tables. Available in raw aluminum and five colors.
Stools by Senimo
Fabien Colomines begins with ethically sourced materials to create his lacquered MDF stools, which are meticulously hand-made in small series. The repetition of curved shapes in solid, graded, or multi-color iterations are the perfect meeting of nature and craftsmanship.
URVI Rug from the Elements Collection by Pappelina
The URVI rug references the dynamic motion of ocean waves, captured in five energetic colors. There is a range of hues within each of them, thereby adding to the sense of constant change. Made from phthalate-free plastic strips for indoor-outdoor use.
Gardenia Tables by ibride
A series of tables by designer Florence Bourel in three heights and four colors, with perforated tops in the shape of the eponymous flower. The thin fins that make up the bodies are sexy and curvy while keeping everything light. Made from high-pressure laminate.
Pieces from the Greek, Classico, Dada, and Outdoor Collections by Mazharia
Based on the owners’ repeat trips to Morocco and inspired by its artisan workshops, this series of terra cotta vases is designed to bring traditional design into modern environments. The specific Majorelle blue pigment is drawn from the Marrakesh garden of the same name.
Aura Table by Songe Mobilier
High-quality marble from Brazil, with metallic veins and bursts of rich color, is fused with clear tempered glass to create an appealing dialogue between its two components. Each piece, designed by Clément Sinibaldi, is hand-made by Provençal artisans.
Lloyd Two-Seat Club Sofa With Fringes From the Glenn Sestig Collection by Giobagnara Studio
Ghent native Glenn Sestig is known for masterful construction, here shown in the Lloyd club sofa. The suede fringe skirt plays with traditional upholstery techniques while bringing a very modern edge to the seat, and its single cushion is both chic and less formal.
